WE CHOOSE THE RIGHT PARTNERS.
Acai Roots looks for opportunities to partner with other companies when it makes sense and is in line with the company’s mission.
For instance, Acai Roots has teamed up with Reef to release the Ah-Sy-Ee sandal.
This sandal integrates the seeds of the acai berry, which are otherwise discarded when the fruit is harvested. Reef saw the potential for reusing this bi-product and painted the seed to adorn the strap of the sandal. This collaboration has already provided a positive impact on the land and the people of the Amazon, as 100% of the profits from the purchase of the seeds for this project go directly to Rhythm of Hope, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged city children of Brazil.
Acai Roots is also a sponsor of and Praia Para Todos, a Brazilian organization dedicated to giving disabled people the opportunity to experience the joy of the beach.
